Moderner Jazz aus Skandinavien

Bad Hersfeld. Die norwegische Sängerin Elin Furubotn gilt trotz ihres nicht kommerziellen Musikstils in ihrer skandinavischen Heimat als absolut radiotauglich. Dies liegt mit Sicherheit nicht zuletzt auch an ihren romantischen Songtexten. Gemeinsam mit ihrem Bühnenpartner Karl Seglem am Saxofon kreiert sie lebensfrohe Lieder, die voll von zarter Emotionalität, von wunderschönen Melodien und jazzigem Zwiegespräch sind und bewusst maximal im Midtempo-Bereich angesiedelt wurden.

If you understand Italian:)

Con il suo quinto album, Elin Furubotn esce per la prima volta dai confini discografici norvegesi. Come suona chiaro sin dai titoli, non si tratta delle solite jazz songs anglosassoni. Oltre alla lingua, anche le
melodie portano l’impronta della loro terra d’origine, per quanto proiettate entro strutture e strumentazioni internazionali:

virtù della globalizzazione della canzone d’autore. Anche se gli assoli di sax cercano di dare una parvenza di jazz (che suona demodé sopra queste linee ritmiche), siamo in ogni caso davanti a un prodotto cantautoriale che della tradizione afroamericana non sa che farsene. Alcuni brani profumano di fiordo; altri sono electropop con un occhio alle playlists radiofoniche; altrove spunta mood music esistenzialista. Il finale dimostra senza dubbi che l’inglese si distende sulla musica assai più agevolmente del norvegese.
